The Pokemon Fossil Museum event is coming to several new science museums in Japan from March 2022. The event will feature comparisons of Pokemon fossils with their real-life counterparts. Additionally, the event will also feature a Pikachu dressed as an archaeologist. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
The Pokemon Fossil Museum special event will arrive at three new museums, with more locations planned for a later date. New sites include the National Museum of Nature and Science, the Toyohashi Natural History Museum, and the Oita Prefecture Art Museum. Each event will feature large-scale exhibits of PokÃ©mon fossils, some as large as actual dinosaur fossils. Some of the locations will also offer never-before-seen interpretations of PokÃ©mon fossils.
At the time of writing, only the National Museum of Nature and Science has a confirmed event period. Each museum will subsequently announce concrete event windows.

The Pokemon Fossil Museum event originally started in July 2021, with the Mikasa City Museum in Hokkaido Prefecture as the first location. With the traveling exhibition slated to run through summer 2022, the Oita Prefecture Art Museum is a new addition to the lineup. The event is currently active at the Shimane Prefecture Nature Museum of Mount Sanbe âSahimelâ until January 30, 2022.
